Scope and content

Negs only, 2. In the larger one, a man dressed in a suit, possibly Sylvester Dirks, a Krimmer Mennonite Brethren missionary, is talking in front of a stone wall beside the protruding head of an dragon-like creature. In the 2nd neg. (7x8.5), an Indigenous woman (likely Ashaninca) holds a child. The description for this neg may be on the enclosed note which states: 28. "Dona Florinda and her baby. Dona Florinda's face brightens wonderfully when she smiles - but Peruvians think it improper to smile in a photo." See CM 4-414 for information about Dona Florinda.
